  1. RUN
    great The Reckoner 32.2 km 03:08 09:23 pace

    Figured if I couldn't run a comfortable 32K three weeks out of the marathon - I wasn't going to do it. Cool, crisp morning, locked my pace at 5:50 and metronomed the hell out of this one.... read more

  2. RUN
    alright All I could squeeze in 4 km

    Couple of fast intervals in there

  3. RUN
    blah Stirlo 10 km

    Lead legs

  4. RUN
    alright South Mole 12 km 01:07 09:00 pace

    Meh

  5. RUN
    good Pre-flight entertainment 4 km

    Nothing better than sneaking in a quick run before sitting in airports and planes for seven hours. See you Canberra, it's been busy but fun and productive.

      Getting on exercise on a long travel day is a pure steal.

  6. RUN
    good AIS soccer fields 8 km

    Laps around huge AIS soccer fields in Canberra, a few intervals to wake up the heart. All good.

  7. RUN
    good Canberra 2 13.5 km

    First 7 on my own, last part with a couple of fellow water polo coaches (both non-runners but trying) doing a couple of leisurely laps around the AIS. Very enjoyable, even if a tad chilli.

  8. RUN
    great Canbera meander 9 km

    A nice and easy meander around the old haunts at the Australian Institute of Sport, Belconnen, Lake Ginnindera on a cool, crisp Canberra morning. Memories (some good, some terrible) flooding back. ... read more

  9. RUN
    alright Slept in 6 km

    Took awhile to get going. Back to the old shoes (bliss, relative), hope they last for another month.

  10. RUN
    alright Learnt a lot 25.7 km 02:26 09:08 pace

    I thought: What would about 25K at a 4-hour marathon pace (on a warm afternoon) look like right now? Well... Made the pace, avg HR 140 (solid), did not include a couple of stops. BUT - 1) I'm ... read more

      Good methodical and realistic review of your current state, including crappy shoes. I need a dose o reality of my own capabilities very often.

  11. RUN
    Quick 5-er 5 km

    All I could do, life's permission

  12. RUN
    alright Phew 10 km

    Shoes better, all I was worried about. I had simply overlaced and overtightened the crap out of them on Monday plus the indsole is starting to groove in a bit. Breaking them in.

      Yay! New shoes are always awesome, unless they're not, and that then sucks.

      So if you bit the crap out they squick on bottom. That should be patented.

    New kicks, Hoka Bondi 5. Another pair of baby boats. Reviews were glowing, seemed perfect... but unusually sore after the first run. http://www.hokaoneone.com/bondi-5.html

      I've never owned a pair of Hokas. What's a good starter shoe with them?

    alright Shoes blues 10.5 km

    3K and 2K pacer in the overall cruise. Took a long while to get going. Got a new pair/model of shoes and found balls of my feet not liking them at all. Will investigate...

  15. RUN
    blah TOF, just TOF 23.7 km 02:25 09:50 pace

    Started all chirpy but began to struggle 5K in. Ignored the numbers that were all over the place and just chipped away, picked up a bit even in last 5. It's as the title says - Time On Feet. ... read more

      Good on you! Little struggle at the 5k and you made it all the way to 24. That is mental strength right there. Have you head about "doming" which is a foot strengthening exercise? It apparently helps prepare your feet for barefoot running but I am sure it could be useful for you. Just an idea. :-) Hope you are resting on the couch.

      I certainly am. The couch thing. While watching three freaks trying to break a 2-hour marathon that is.

      I did the same!! Watched the full two hours. So exciting and just amazing. So close and yet so far. Kipchoge is inspiring.

  16. RUN
    good Bit of speed 6.5 km

    Quick warm up, then 5 x 3min short tempo (4.30-ish) + 2min easy, cool down. Pleasantly surprised.

  17. RUN
    alright Slept in 8 km

    Hills to make up for distance.

  18. RUN
    alright Two steady @ AT 10 km

    Easy with two lots of 3K around 5 - 5.05 which seems to be my AT at the moment.

  19. RUN
    good Grooove 21 km 02:02 09:22 pace

    A metronome down to bloody freezing Bibra Lake and back. Avg HR 129, not a puff except the hills. Chest/base seems still OK, just need a bit of extra strength Ks in legs for marathon in six weeks.

  20. RUN
    alright Oooh, puffed! 6 km

    Bit of warm up then 8 lots of 2 minutes fast - 1 minute jog/walk. Restarted that heart, opened the hips a bit.
